Decision Making Issues Related to Critical Infrastructures Interdependencies Management

Safa Attia, Abdelhak Boubetra, and Manel Saad Saoud
Abstract—In recent years, disaster management has become a new concern in decision making in most world countries. The main reason for this trend among world countries is the phenomenon of how to keep in safety critical infrastructures that can cause complex and difficult situations in the case of a failure problem or a catastrophic event. As a consequence the appearance of a large number of vulnerabilities and the increasing interdependence of economic and social activities put vital networks (lifelines) in a particular delicate position. However, these networks form critical infrastructures such that safety and security of each one of them depend on all the others. The more these critical infrastructures are interdependent, the more their failure can have catastrophic consequences on the whole. To strengthen and manage these infrastructures, and reduce their vulnerabilities, several research issues appeared in the past. This paper aims to present a modeling approach to solve problems related to the cause of failures of critical infrastructures. These issues are treated through agent based modeling and simulation by providing proactive solutions and take appropriate decisions by creating adaptive simulation scenarios.

Index Terms—Critical infrastructure, interdependency, security, simulation, multi-agent systems.
